Using the REAL as a poetic element in cinema: A free form writing experiment based on the work of Pier Paolo Pasolini
MetadataShow full item record
I will investigate the context of the real within a historical framework of reflexivity in the arts and a linguistic analysis, based on Pasolini's semiotics. I endeavor to make the case that language can also be considered a real that evokes a reflexive interpretation in literary and cinematic efforts, using as my focus the Sicilian dialect. I will apply the work of Pier Paolo Pasolini as a basis for my examination. I aim to implement a notebook structure and will conglomerate concepts into a series of notes that underscores the "written" (reflexive) nature of this paper. Included will be production notes from my film Medea , for which I have adopted the same notebook structure. Thoughts on exposing the process of making this film will be included. My conclusion is that a fragmented structure supports an intellectual rigour through the paper, just as a poetic structure in cinema supports the narrative.
